In 1999, when e-commerce of luxury goods was still a novelty, London Gallery opted decisively for internet by creating its first website: www.londongallery.net. This online tool was used to develop a growth strategy and go beyond national boundaries, increasing the references in catalog to propose even more products and reach customers all over Europe. Since then we have grown exponentially and gained public notoriety to become a global reference in the specific English furniture sector. Today, London Gallery brand products are marketed and distributed daily throughout Europe and overseas.
Faithful to the original formula of our success, we remain confident in the manufacture completely handmade and the authentic "Made in England", significantly differing from other companies selling British-style furniture but manufactured outside the United Kingdom and also from importers of containers of Asian products of inferior quality. Only London Gallery offers you a complete and 100% made in England, real British furniture catalog.
